Baseball tips

What I learned from our very own college-level summer baseball team, the Madison Mallards:

Other key concepts I have internalized, but did not discuss above: a big guy throws the ball. Then, a big guy tries to wack the ball! Sometimes, another big guy catches the ball.

A note for those with extremely good screen resolution: no, my name isn't Josh - I just got a really good deal on my vintage YMCA tee ball shirt.


Fun on the Farm

Both Mommy and Daddy were able to sneak out of work the morning my school went to see a farm. There were cows and chickens and llamas and rabbits and roosters and cats and ducks and turkeys and goats and lots of huge farm equipment. Oh my! We had lots of fun and petted lots of animals. Some animals were very big and we just looked at them from far away. We started off with a hayride.

Daddy learned that cow tongues are scratchy.

My friend Alex and I really liked this kitty.

I wasn't exactly sure what to do with the chick.

Here we all are! We all had a fun time and fell asleep in the van on the way back to school.


Two of a kind (kind of)

Note for the squeamish: Daddy was just playing in the dog food, not eating it.


Summer in Ohio is Pretty Nice, Too

Mmmm, mulberries...
